Wagner: What’s the rush?

To the people who drive on Frying Pan Road: Slow down!

Where are you going? Is the reservoir going to drain before you get your boat there? Is the river going to dry up before you get to fish?

I have lived on this road for over 40 years and haven’t ever witnessed this many rude drivers — from locals to tourist.

I almost got run over because the driver behind me — a fishing guide and his clients — couldn’t stop for 30 seconds and let a semi pass before he moved over, so my dog and I didn’t get hit and possibly killed.

Really?! You put my life at risk to save 30 seconds?
